Chicken Rice has been one of the many comfort foods on my list for a very long time.
Sometimes, I tend to become homesick and miss a few of my favourite foods in Malaysia. One of them is chicken rice. As I was doing research on “Best Chicken Rice in Perth” on google , I stumbled upon Hoi Bo Chinese Restaurant. From the reviews on Urbanspoon, there were many great reviews and most of them were associated with the chicken rice. Could this be one of Perth’s best chicken rice on the north side of the river? I think so too.
Mum and I arrived at Hoi Bo early on a Saturday for the Malaysian lunch. Not long after we arrived, the tables were all fully occupied and when I had a look around, most of the tables ordered Chicken Rice for lunch. That shows how popular the Chicken Rice is! Hoi Bo has two different types of chicken; soya sauce and steamed. We had the soya sauce and steamed chicken. I really enjoyed both and thought that they were delicious and tender. A generous bowl of rice and a big bowl of soup with salted vegetables, tomato and a few chunks of meat accompanies the chicken too. The chicken rice was by far the most flavoursome and fluffiest chicken rice I have ever had in Perth. The soup was also full of flavour and the chili sauce complemented the overall dish very well. It was not too spicy and was just right for me.

After finishing our hearty chicken rice lunch, we still have some room for dessert. So mum and I decided to share a Bubur Cha Cha and Tau Fu Fa. The Tau Fu Fa was very smooth and the Bubur Cha Cha was executed perfectly with pieces of taro and sweet potato. It was a great dessert to end a yummy lunch.

To satisfy your chicken rice cravings, why not pay Hoi Bo Chinese Restaurant a visit? Before I forget, Hoi Bo restaurant is closed for a week and will re open for business as usual on the 30th of October 2013 and the Malaysian Lunch is available only on the weekends.
